TWD Grandma's All-Occasion Sugar Cookies (italiano a seguire)



Ciao ! This week we had planned lots of cookies decorations with Anita and Carlo but a flu really made it impossible ! Anita is sleeping since a few hours and all she managed to do was cut a few cookies ! Next time we'll catch up ! The recipe is a very simple one, apart from trowing the dough in the freezer every now and then ( I wonder about making it in the summer !). I flavoured all the dough with orange zest and half with crushed cardamom seeds.
I thank Ulrike of Kuchenlatein for choosing this cookies and to see much more colours and shapes visit the Tuesdays with Dorie blogroll.

Questa settimana ci eravamo immaginati di decorare biscotti in tutti i modi con i bambini e invece l'influenza li ha colpiti e non c'è stato molto da fare !! Questi biscotti sono molto semplici io ho aggiunto scorza di arancia e cardamomo. Nelle regole di Tuesday with Dorie si dice di non scrivere la ricetta , l'unico che la può scrivere è l'ospite della settimana, se vi serve aiuto con le traduzioni fatemelo sapere !

I bet the orange zest and cardamom made these extra special! I am so sorry that the flu has hit your family -- that's the worst! Hope that everyone is on the mend.

Oh no - the evil flu!!! I hope your little ones get well soon!
Sugar cookies are my favourites - I'm so glad I can make them vegan. Decorating them is one of my favourite parts of the holiday!

I bet that was good with cardamom and orange zest!

These look great Natalia - these are the kind of cookies that do not need fancy decoration (and Dorie didn't decorate hers).

I think orange zest sounds tasty. Sorry about the flu - I've been sick too and today my husband came down with it. I hate when people get sick at the holidays! I hope your family gets over it quickly. Your cookies look delicious.

Hope the family has recovered from the flu. I also had it until a couple of days ago. The cookies sound delicious.
